Dear lybtateuser, - There is a ECG change which the report mentions as an early change, it may not be very significant unless you have signs & symptoms of any heart problem - you have to reduce your weight by dieting & regular exercise - have more of fruits & vegetables that is more of fibre containing foods, spinach, beans, legumes, nuts - avoid fried, processed, sugary, salty foods - do aerobic exercise like brisk walking, jogging, swimming for 30-40 min, do moderate weight lifting to boost your metabolism, try to include yoga, meditation & deep breathing for 10-15 min daily in the morning - monitor your BP, blood sugar, cholesterol, thyroid hormone level & weight regularly destress yourself by proper sleep for 7-8 hrs at night, reading, listening to music, follow a hobby.

Are bananas are good for heart. I have read in somewhere that bananas ate not good for heart.
Bananas are best for heart yes they are a rich source of potassium and you can eat ad many as you like. There will be no extra potassium which will harm the heart. Yes potassium taken as medicine does cause harmful side effects. Don't bother about extra calories also because it is giving you other essential vitamins and minerals too. Cut down other calories which are either empty calories like excess sugar or just basic calories like chapattis.

Review after a couple of months will show his progress. A perfusion scan can tell us whether he will benefit from surgery. But we have to let him recover from the attack for some time first. Please share the reports of the cardiologist when you go for the next review.

Drink lots of water as medicine, juices of cane, avoid fats and unnecessary medicines including multivitamins, you can take liv 52 tabs 2 /day. Liver infections like jaundice are time limiting, take total rest, do not go out in the sun so that there is no sweating and water loss from body is avoided. Eat high protein simple diet like toned milk and whites of eggs, and water in any form is the treatment. Good luck. Do write back.

Hi, ladies of your age are less likely to have ischemic heart disease, especially when there are no risk factors. The pain could be muscular or arising from the joints of your chest wall, a condition called costochondritis. You can have some pain killer ointments and avoid lifting weights with left hand.
